“Peaceful, clean, and very accomodating.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2009

We were able to make last minute reservations with ease. Although we could only stay one night, and the Victoria normally requires two nite stays, John was very accomodating and took our reservation. The Victoria is a short walk to the beach, and has a wonderful porch and lovely pool, although it does get shady in the later PM [ this might be welcomed after spending the day on the beach on one of those really hot summer days]. There are actually two houses next door to each other [one has the lettered rooms and the other has numbered rooms]. Complimentary bottled water and coffee is always available, as are bikes and beach chairs. Breakfast was very nice...oameal or waffles with blueberries, or both if you liked, as well as cereal, fruit, yogurt.... There is air conditioning, but we lucked out and the breeze in room 1 was so cool, my husband slept with the comforter all night. It was wonderful! Quiet, cool, and the breeze drifting through the windows. We'd certainly visit here again. And if you are there on Wednesday evenings during the summer, there is an outdoor concert in the gazeboo that you probably could hear while rocking on the porch with a chilled chardonay! Good Times!

I highly recommend this B&B for anyone who wants the perfect place to stay at LBI. We had two rooms with our teenage daughter and her friend. I had the best time - our hosts made us feel welcome and comfortable. The wrap around porches are wonderful and inviting, with wicker furniture and hammock. The pool is in a quiet garden setting - no hustle and bustle of motel pools with kids jumping in and splashing. The beach is steps away with first class beach chairs and bikes supplied by our hosts. The rooms are perfect - large, furnished in lovely Victorian style. Centrally located in Beach Haven, you can walk to everything. Lemonade and cakes in the afternoon on the porch - sigh...wish I was back there now! Can't wait to come back next year!

This b & b looked great when i found it online. I had not been on vacation with my husband in 2 years so this was a very important trip for us. It was well worth sending our three year old to grandma & grandpa's for a few days!! When we arrived it met & exceeded all our hopes & expectations and we had a great time celebrating our 7 year anniversary Beach all day, bike riding in the early evening,swimming in the pool, great bars & restaurants right there!We didn't have to use our car at all!
The rooms are beautiful.We stayed 1 night in Room D & 3 nights in the Bayside Cottage.I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere cleaner!!It was the ideal get away for us!Thank you to everyone at the Victoria for making our vacation so wonderful!

My second trip to the Victoria Guest House this summer season was with my girlfriend Debbie from Farmingdale, LI. We're both turning 50 later this year, and the Victoria was the PERFECT place for us to celebrate with a girls' weekend. We arrifved on Fri the 14th, and from start to finish our stay with the Millers was wonderful. A stay at the Victoria is like visiting with good friends and family. They always have a great recommendation for lunch and dinner, and Friday night they recommended the Engleside, which is right up the block. Terrific. That night, ice cream cones on the front porch was a great way to relax before going up to our comfy, huge room. Sat morning John made his absolutely yummy french toast - the best I've ever tasted,, and that day was spent by the pool and on the beach. Sun morning Judy made decadent monkey bread, and we had 3 different types of quiches to choose from - Deb and I had the bacon quiche. As always, the Millers were warm, friendly and welcoming. I've been going to the Victoria with my husband and friends for 10 years - this was Deb's first time there and she LOVED IT! Can't wait for us to go next summer for another girls' weekend. Judy and John, Marilyn and Leonard, and of course Maggie, made our weekend a relaxing and special one. See you soon!

This was our fourth stay at the Victoria, and as always, it was wonderful. These two historic homes are tastefully decorated and rooms are comfortable and roomy. They are only a few houses away from the beach and everything else LBI has to offer - Surflight Theatre is across the street, shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. You can spend quiet time sitting on the porch sipping ice tea or visit the water park or play miniature golf only a few blocks away. The pool is another plus. Breakfast is fantastic, an array of baked goods, breads, cereals, fruits and a cooked item each day like blueberry waffles, or sausage and egg casserole. The Millers are friendly and helpful innkeepers, and AC is only a 40 minute ride if you want to gamble. Always a great time here!

My sisters and I went on our very first "sisters' getaway" and wanted a place that could accomodate three of us in one room. We found it at Victoria Guest House. Our room had a king bed and a cot. I was a little nervous when I was told one of us would have to sleep on a cot, but much to my delight, the cot was very comfortable.
The VGH is very clean and quiet. The location is perfect. The hosts, John and Judy, are very friendly and accomodating. Everything you need for a day at the beach is provided - beach towels, beach badges, beach bag, beach chairs, and ice cold bottled water. The bikes are great for a quick ride to the downtown shops or a tour of the area. The pool is a bonus.
Of course a B&B review isn't complete without a comment about the food. DELICIOUS!! (And too much, but that is my problem :) Every morning there was a bountiful spread of fresh fruit, baked goods, cereal, bagels, coffee, juice, and a hot dish. Coffee, tea, chai, and hot chocolate are also available throughout the day with John's fancy-schmancy coffee maker. After a quick lesson, we were hooked.
Thank you to John and Judy for making our "sisters' getaway" extra special. I highly recommend the Victoria Guest House.

My wife and I returned today from a five-day stay at Victoria Guest House...our fourth consecutive annual visit. Having been a vacationer on NJ's LBI since childhood, I can say conclusively that we've found the perfect accommodations. Hosts John and Judy Miller make their guests feel like they have their own house on the beach. There's much to be said about this B&B - all the standard amenities are there. This review will focus on some of the intangibles and other amenities that separate VGH from the rest of the pack.

1) Location. A block and a half from the beach. Right across the street from a park. Right in the heart of Beach Haven and walking distance from great shops, restaurants, family amusement parks, boat rentals, etc. This is one of the most desirable spots on the island.

2) Rooms. There are essentially two guest houses to choose from (Guest House I and Guest House II), each with six rooms. All are very charming, roomy, comfortable and immaculately cleaned daily. Towels, sheets, etc. are in excellent condition. There is no feeling of being crowded as the property provides plenty of room for all guests.

3) Breakfast. The breakfasts are great. Each morning, guests are treated to a combination buffet/specialty breakfast. There is plenty of fresh fruit, baked goods, cereals, juices, etc. to choose from. In addition, the hosts prepare a specialty item each day (fresh waffles, French toast, quiche, pancakes). Throughout the day, guests have access to tea, coffee and snacks.

4) Hosts. John and Judy have it down to a science in terms of guest interaction. It is a skill to determine when certain guests would like their own space or when friendly conversation and interaction is desired. If you want to feel like family, they accommodate. If you'd rather enjoy a bit more seclusion, not a problem.

5) Intangibles. This list could be lengthy. Here are some things that stand out to me and my wife: heated pool (great to enjoy after a day at the beach), refrigerator full of bottled water, brand new beach chairs (very comfortable and functional for beach use), all the beach essentials (large towels, canvas beach bag, beach badges), both houses have large wrap-around porches (very comfortable and well-appointed), great stories and unique island history from John's family (father, mother and dog, Maggie, live nearby), while check-out is 11:00 AM, guests can stay longer and utilize outdoor showers and on-site restrooms to make a full day of your departure day. An example of a VGH intangible: John noticed my wife's bottle of Grey Goose vodka was near empty towards the end of our trip. After coming back to the house from dinner/shopping one evening, a brand new bottle appeared in our refrigerator. How often do things like that happen?

All-in-all, if you enjoy the B&B vacation model, you will love Victoria Guest House. Just please stay out of room 5 or 6 in Guest House II during the first week of August (it's mine).
